Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Little Hedgehog is back in this adorable picture book. He's excited about the weather as he finally gets to try out his new raincoat, boots, and umbrella. As he goes out for a walk, he encounters other animals and even has a few narrow escapes from the now-heavier rain, wind, and rising waters. The pictures are done in vivid pastels and are the stars of the show. Hedgehog's umbrella and rain gear have an enticing gloss that begs to be touched. While the story line seems to wander a little, the premise is simple and comforting, ending with hot cocoa and cookies at Badger's home. Despite the animals' ordeals, this book has a cozy, snuggly tone, and parents will take pleasure in sharing it while their youngsters nestle in. A great rainy-day read.—Adrienne Wilson, Edith Wheeler Memorial Library, Monroe, CT

I had never heard of this series, so if I had not run across it at a books-and-mortar bookstore, I would not have thought to buy it. But, it caught my eye one day, and I leafed through it, mesmerized. The illustrations are brilliant, beautiful, and bright. The "shimmery shiny" umbrella just adds enough something to make every illustration jump off the page. You just want to crawl into the pictures in this book and take refuge from the rain with Little Hedgehog. The story is completely engaging, and my 3 year old loves it, every time. We will be getting the other books in this series, but note: Why is there no autumn version? Would love to see one!

The Hedgehog, a character with a palpable personality that you will love, is a beacon of light throughout the story. For example, even though it is raining, he can't wait to wear his new boots. Moreover, he enjoys playing with his gear in the storm, but Mole struggles with the spate of water and wind. In fact, his house has been blown away and he ask Hedgehog to help him find another home. Yet, the author never solves this problem in my opinion-all the animals in the story find refuge at Badger's house. Overall, the setting and description of the story enhances the book, but author did not tie up all loose ends.

Little Hedgehog needs to be squeezed! These stories always show his ever sweet nature and adorable friends. We love the special paper and texture that is added to the book itself to enhance the adventure in the story! We hope these lovely stories continue to come in the future!

This book is so cute and endearing. Little Hedgehog is so happy and positive. I think book teaches great values, like helping others less fortunate and maintaining a positive attitude. The illustrations are bright and engaging. My 2 year old LOVES this story and I can't wait to get more of Ms. Butler's stories to add to my daughter's library! If you're on the fence, go for it. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

My son borrowed this from his Pre-K school library 3 weeks in a row! He's usually excited to borrow different books each week, but this one keeps coming home so he can read it over and over. He's never done this with any other book, so there's something about it that he really enjoys.
